You'll never fix a running problem on a Chrysler product by replacing the fuel filter, other than on diesel trucks. When it won't start, check for spark. If it's missing, replace the Hall Effect pickup assembly in the distributor under the cap and rotor. They often fail when they get warm.

If you do have spark, you might try a new MAP sensor.
